Battle Royale Dev Update #12 – Weapon and Storm Changes and Progressive Outfit Updates


Hey everyone, Eric here, today we are going to be giving some development insight to the…. recent updates to Battle Royale. Let’s dive in! WEAPON UPDATES Okay, so in 5.0 we’ve made some changes to shotguns. We wanted to make them a little bit more consistent… so we updated the spread on the pellets inside the aim reticle to be consistent. That means they will always shoot in the same dispersion. In addition, we have red dots that show which pellet has hit a target so that you can easily see… if you did damage or not. Finally, we also added a short delay after firing a shotgun if you are switching to another shotgun. This is because running multiple shotguns was too advantageous and… we wanted to make sure that was kept in line with other weapons. We also recently made some changes to SMG’s and we’re generally pretty happy with how this turned out. We were seeing that the suppressed SMG was being picked over assault rifles for long range engagements… and we wanted to make sure that it fit its role for close to medium range. So we adjusted the fall off damage slightly so that the assault rifle still can be effective. Part of our weapon design is to make sure that each weapon is usable in different circumstances… we have strength and weaknesses that basically encourage use in different scenarios. And as we continue to add weapons, and continue to balance our weapons… we’re going to evaluate those strength and weaknesses, and continue to make sure… that all weapons have viable uses. STORM CHANGES In this update, we have also adjusted the storm circle behavior. In the final circles: 7,8, and 9… the storm will center outside of the playable area and will shrink towards… that location. This is to encourage dynamic and exciting gameplay… for the matches that do reach that length. PROGRESSIVE OUTFIT UPDATES We’ve gotten a lot of feedback about Season 4 progressive outfits and… the main concern was that people didn’t feel they had enough time to complete them. So with Season 5, progressive outfits will be based on experience… and can be completed outside of the season. So that you can continue to complete it even after Season 5 is over. Alright everyone, before we close out, we wanted to show you the very scientific process… that our audio team uses for gathering reference material. Here’s a quick look at them gathering sounds for the ATK. Alright, from everyone here at Epic, have a blast with Season 5. Until next time! FORTNITE SEASON 5 WORLDS COLLIDE PLAY FREE NOW

  1. At 1:58 so does that mean you are still able get the pickaxe and the challenges For drift is still there after season 5 is over? Please answer

  2. Pls EpicGames Or Fortnite Developers Your Game Is Dying people play Pubg because there is no bloom in Pubg so pls delete bloom in Fortnite and players will play this again

  3. Great game, Thanks, Epic. You have a reputation to uphold. I've been gaming for +40 years, this is by far the most challenging, thought provoking, scenario changing game I have ever experienced. Any chance you can randomize the terrain every round? Need more cherries for a less skilled player matched against a more highly skilled player at the end of a match(lesser skilled players who do well against a highly skilled player should be rewarded somehow). Midi songs are mostly unrecognizable although some have a good beat, any chance you can use some ACDC, DIO, OZZY, etc.. or something? "Let the bodies hit the floor!" "Let the bodies hit the floor!"

  4. What if you didn't get the outfit upgardes/stages in time will it please continue to off season just like for season 5?

  5. This game trash what you mean, can't control a bullets damage in a real shooting game, everything is supposed to do lots of damage

  6. Epic:(takes out double pump)
    Epic:(adds MORE smgs that lasers your health in less than five seconds)
    Shotguns don't do damage

    Receives best game of the year
    People with brains: u wot m8

  7. We don't like the double shotgun change. Can you at least reduce the timer to 0.8 instead of 1 second? (Something like that.) And can you make the Suppressed SMG do 10 damage as it's max damage dropoff instead of 9?

  8. I got the Ragnarok, but I don't think I have time to get it to the last stage.. But I can still upgrade his outfit at Season 6 right?

  9. I always imagined how cool it would be to have a melee weapon like a spear that did 40 damage per hit, then you could throw it for maybe 50 damage.

  10. Can you make so we can unlock the lights for omega haha i only started playing season 4 and i work so cant play 24/7 and there is lots of other people who didnt complete it

  11. how is double shotgun advantageous? Isn't now Spraying advantageous? it takes like no skill to just spam all the ammo and get freaking so much benefits from it. Make it more fair or all players will quit ur game!

  12. I'm personally against the progressive skins being attained in later seasons.
    People who worked hard for those in their respective season deserve to stand out, that was just taken away.
    I didnt max my omega because i started in week 5, but I'm proud of getting it regardless. I worked hard to aquire it.
    My ragnarok i stopped exp farming late week 9, at 380k i realized i wouldn't make it, but it didnt matter because eventually I will have it maxed regardless of my work. However, thanks to the 400% boost this weekend, i jumped up to level 82 which is far higher than the level 78 which was needed.
    But thia skin will forever not stand out because any tier 100 can aquire it later.

    I think it would be more fair to make the people exp farming for a season 5 skin in season 6 have to wear that skin to level its exp toward completion. Any exp gained should only count toward the skin they're wearing (assuming its a progressive skin).

    Allowing them to just level it whenever they want makes me feel like it isnt even worth buying the battle pass, because the final forms arent forever rare anymore.

  13. hAvInG 2 sHoTgUn WaS a LiTtLe ToO aDvAnTaiGoUs, we are totally not trying to empress the 10-year-olds who play fortnite to buy some v bux……………….

  14. Hey fortnite, can you add different colors for the bouncers? Like other colors other than blue, what I mean is… every time you place an bouncer it change's color! can you add that plz?

  15. Epic I heard from one of my friends the game might be in beta and the real game is coming after season 10 is that true cause I always thought fortnite was always after season 1 it was in the full game I don’t know if I’m right but I think I am can you talk about it in a video

  16. Fortnite I know u can see this DO NOT BRING GINGER BREAD MAN BACK INTO THE ITEM SHOP if epic doesn’t listen use code lazerbeam when u buy him that’s all I ask
